CAN MUSHROOM SOUP BE FROZEN

Yes, if sealed properly it can freeze up to 2 months or it can store in your fridge up to 3 days. 

I grew up eating mushroom soup, you know the kind from the can! Even then I loved it and so did my Mother.

Actually it was her favorite soup, but she never ever made it from scratch.

Then when I became a huge foodie in my later years, I made it for her.

And she literally near fell off her chair, ever since then she makes it from scratch just like this.

Once you try making mushroom soup from home. You will never ever go back to the canned kind, trust me.

It is a crime. A crime on real homemade mushroom soup!
